This floral print is one of many in a series we offer and makes an excellent choice for home or office, or, as a gift for any gardening, or flower enthusiast.

ABOUT THE BOTANIST
Diederich Franz Leonahard von Schlechtendal was a German botanist and who lived from November 27, 1794 to October 12, 1866. He studied in Berlin, in 1819 becoming curator of the Royal Herbarium. He was a professor of botany and director of the Botanical Gardens at the Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg from 1833 until his death in 1866.
He was editor of the botanical journal "Linnaea" (from 1826), and with Hugo von Mohl (1805-1872), was publisher of the Botanischen Zeitung (from 1843). He conducted important investigations of the then largely unknown flora of Mexico, carried out in conjunction with Adelbert von Chamisso (1781-1838), and based on specimens collected by Christian Julius Wilhelm Schiede (1798-1836) and Ferdinand Deppe (1794-1861). The standard botanical abbreviation "Schltdl." is applied to species he described.
OUR GICLEE PRINTS
Your giclee print will be created using archival, fade-resistant, pigment inks, heavyweight, museum-quality paper and a 11-color process fine-art printer to ensure the most vivid, detailed and long-lasting print. To prevent fading, as with all prints, please never expose them to direct sunlight. To protect your investment, we recommend that you mat and frame your prints.
There is no mat or frame included with this print other than the high-quality basswood frames we use to create our ready-to-hang gallery wrapped canvas prints.
This purple iris botanical print is offered in the most popular sizes to make matting and framing a breeze with your local retailer. The print you will receive will measure exactly the dimensions you ordered. It is designed in such a manner that all of the main image will fit well within the standard mat that comes with frames that you can purchase at many retail stores.
All of our prints are carefully positioned with an approximate 1/8 inch border on all sides for matting and framing. If you would like a different size border, or a borderless print, just let me know in the "Notes To Seller" when you place your order. The border may vary slightly on vintage images due to the size of the original artwork.
MATTING & FRAMING TIPS
Select the PRINT SIZE for your needs, then add the mat dimensions to the print size to determine what your final frame size should be. When you plan to mat a print, the rule of thumb is to order your PRINT SIZE one size smaller than your frame size--this allows for the addition of the mat of your choosing. For a statement wall, bigger is better, both with the print size, and the frame size.
